    Unanswered: set special keys for opening form

    i am trying to set some special keys for opening forms

    like if i press f1 then it shuld open form1
    if i press f2 then it shuld open form2

    i tried using macros.. bt when gave somethign like {r} then it does open the form but it does open that form for any key pressed .. like s ..v . .or wht ever

    i want to set that to one special key..

    and also is it possible to disable keys like f1 for help by default

    Why in the world would you want to have an autokey mapped to "R"??! It would make it impossible to type data.

    I know of no way to disable F1 = Help.

    You should be able to detect keys with events like On KeyPress and act accordingly.
